the bachmann campaign is even more like an "snl" skit than we ever imagined? joining me now are dana milbank and angela rye. thank you both for coming on the show tonight. >> good to be with you, reverend. >> i mean, dana, what would you have given to be a fly on the wall at the bachmann mirror? >> oh, it's so terrific. but it's a very common practice in politics. right now president obama is looking in the mirror and asking what he should do in syria. so we see this sort of thing. >> there is a little difference in this. >> slight difference on that. >> i had previously i thought the congresswoman had indicated god told her to run. so now we have her doing mirror mirror on the wall who is the most interesting candidate of us all. >> angela, with all the talk of bachmann being not really authentic, the book alleges she was anything but that. let me quote from the book. bachmann was not able to make a decision on her own without a consultant's filter. this speaks to who she was. so far right minnesota candidate who got in over her head and turned huckster for advice. >> well, i think we not o
. heck of a job, gop, too bad you can't blame your way into winning an election. joining me now are dana mill bangs and maria teresa kumar. thank you for being here. >> it's absurd, because everybody knows he was in indonesia learning to become a muslim during that time. many thought that saddam -- and if you're listening to fox news every night, you may not hear that exactly, about you you're led in that direction, and i think that's part of the echo chamber we are hearing now. if people are not particularly informed, there's no telling what they might actually come up with, but this one is delicious. >> it seems like this is really telling, when you have people that can have a reasonable portion of the public in a given state, actually believe one who wasn't even in offense may have been responsible for something, this is a serious statement. >> this is absolutely part of the larger agenda of revisionist history that the republican party is doing it, in absence of providing real solutions to the country as problems. the more they can blame president obama, whether or because you're act
his own party. joining me now, dana milbank. dana, do you think we can expect the donald to send some private investigators up to calgary? >> oh, i certainly hope so, reverend. i think this is a juicy skangds. ted cruz lived there until he was 4 years old. we can only wonder what loyalties he picked up there. is he loyal to the queen? does he secretly go home to texas and drink molsons and say words like eh? >> ted cruz went out and gave this to a texas newspaper to try to put this brewing controversy behind him, but he actually created one that didn't exist before because now it turns out he's legally a dual citizen. he's also a citizen of canada. >> angela, donald trump was the king of birthers, but listen to what he said about senator cruz. >> ted cruz, born in canada. >> yeah. >> is he eligible to be president of the united states? >> well, if he was born in canada, perhaps not. i'm not sure where he was born. >> he was definitely born in canada. >> okay. then you'll have to ask him that question, so perhaps not. >> ted cruz's mother was an american. >> that will be ironed out. i
. >> allegedly, posedly, i'm sure it was true. >> joining us michael eric dyson, and dana milbank, michael, you've got a dream that joe walsh pays his child support, but on a completely bill o'reilly said that george w. bush wasn't invited, in fact he was invited, as was his fare, as was speaker john boehner, as well as eric cantor. so what gives here? >> the fact that the other shoe has dropped, and we know the real deal, let's see if they're equally aggressive about the as is of these noteworthy republicans. the fact is the civil rights movement at its broadest was a nonpartisan affair. martin luther king jr. and the other leaders of that particular march were invested in the radical transformation of america according to principles of democracy. if you were a supporter, whether libertarian, whether you were republican or democratic, then you could participate freely. the point is these republicans units that they are antitheyically opposed to every moment and gesture of black freedom that was articulated yesterday, and more broadly about progressive realization of rights for gale and lesbian
's get right to our panel. joining us, michael eric dyson of georgetown university, and dana milbank, political columnist for the "washington post." professor, i want to read a statement that ted cruz sent to the dallas morning news, sent out today. said the dallas morning news said i may technically have dual citizenship. assuming that is true, sure, i would renounce any canadien citizenship. nothing against canada, but i'm an american by birth. as a u.s. senator, i believe i should only be an american. professor michael eric jackson, have we officially entered the age of birther irony? >> ironic to be sure. first of all, are you really reading the dallas newspaper to determine your citizenship? that alone is worthy of some deconstruction. but what's interesting here is that is the ironies never cease to amaze me here. and the bitter hypocrisy of the right. now why don't we have a controversy here? because canada is not as nefarious as being born in kenya, the dark continent? so the reality is that you know, if it was good enough for the goose, it's good enough for the gander. if it
-chair chad brown joins me along with the great dana milbank. chad, when id think this steve king thing is so fraught with stuff. here's a guy whose brain puts together this weird simultaneous equation. people come across the border from mexico or somewhere else all of a certain size, but they're that big wide legs that he compares to of all the fruits in the world, cantaloupe and their carrying 75 pounds of marijuana. i was trying to figure out how much 75 pounds of marijuana would look like. it would be bigger than this whole room. 75 pounds. how does he put his head around all these negative thoughts just to show how much contempt he has for latinos? think he's smiling because i'm smiling. it's weird. it's weird. your thoughts. tell me why you quit the party, by the way. >> well, it was a decision that was very personal for me. i spoke with several friends, family members, a pastor. i felt uncomfortable with a lot of the hateful rhetoric, and with these issues, the immigration issue, for example. it's the rhetoric, and not just from the representative king but social media is everywhere wi
. for the politics of it all, dana millbank. first to you, ambassador. american aid to egypt is about $1.5 billion a year, but $1.3 billion of that goes immediately back into american private corporations defense contractors for egypt to buy weapons. just cutting off aid to egypt isn't exactly the answer because that would have a negative impact on america. >> toure, there's so much naval gazing going on with this foreign policy issue it seems we're getting totally lost in the weeds here. the fact of the matter is that the egyptian generals do not need this $1.3 billion or $1.5 billion. whatever is left in the pipeline for the rest of this fiscal year is about $300 million. the saudis and others have said they will step in and fill the gap in. let me tell you, it's just a matter of time before vladimir putin says to the egyptians, guess what, russia will step in and fill whatever the americans don't provide here. we have to stand up for our values. if we want to suspend aid, that's the main reason. it will have no bearing on the decision making of the generals who have already dismissed what the o
on the complex political situation facing the president, i want to bring in dana milbank, political columnist for the "washington post." you just heard andrea mitchell talk about the fact you have this president who came into office, elected in large part getting that democratic nomination because of his caution, but this thing is moving, this train's going in one direction, and that's toward military action. >> that's right. he opposed iraq as a dumb war, but by his own terms, he's left himself absolutely no choice here because he said famously that this was the red line. the use of chemical weapons and if there had been any doubt before, his administration has erased that today. it has to be a very serious response, and as andrea was discussing, the only real question is whether it is this surge cal strike or a more intensive air campaign against the syrian regime. nobody's talking about anything beyond air power at this point. the only certainty we have is that whatever this president does, he's going to be criticized for it for doing too much for doing too little, for going with the unite
those represent, conservatives do not? >> that is a big part of -- dana rohrabacher was just speaking a few days ago where he basically tipped his hand in this. it's basically if the planet is warming then we'll need government intervention. because we don't like government intervention, ergo the planet cannot be warming. and it's a reverse engineered logic that gets them to opposing it. >> polls show it's a pressing issue for americans, an issue you examine in the documentary. let's take a look at your work. >> according to a recent gallup poll, only one-third of americans are greatly worried about climate change. what can possibly explain this apathy when 99.8% of scientific study support the existence of human-caused global warming? well, some of the credit goes to the so called experts who peddle dubious science to counter any government attempt to tackle the issue, the deniers. >> if you do nothing about this at all, for the whole of the next 23 years, the worst that will happen, using the u.n.'s own estimates, is a one fahrenheit degree warming, which will be largely harmless an
, and dana raurerbach. [ applause ] now, i've got to tell you the truth. i've been looking forward to this visit because -- and this is a little tricky to say this, but my family and i, we've got a special place in our hearts for the marine corps. part of it is because every day at the white house we're surrounded by marines. in fact, we probably got some folks here who were at the white house who are now here at camp pendleton. see? i figured as much. and then, of course, every time i need to kind of hop, skip, and jump somewhere, every time i get on marine one, i rely on some of the best aviators in the world. i've seen your honor. i've seen your courage. i've seen your commitment, whether in protecting our diplomatic posts around the world or preparing to deploy to iraq or afghanistan or recovering from wounds received in battle. you know, a few years ago you gave a great camp pendleton welcome to my wife michelle, and i know it's not as exciting when i come to visit, but she says hi. i guess i'm kind of like that army general who once said, the more marines i have around, the b
republican congressman dana rorbacker said it at a tea party event other day, the crowd went wild. why climate denialism and global government conspiracy is a fan favorite of the right wing base. >>> plus, pouring smirnoff vodka into the streets.
to see more movement on this whole issue? >> i certainly hope so. another of karen's colleagues, dana priest, has chronicled how pathetic the congressional oversight is of the intelligence machinery of the country and i think this report continues to show that. what is disturbing to me about this report and karen raised with the issues of the various typos is how powerful algorithms are. when you're punching in data and so much is digitized the accident flow that comes out of these areas. a book by jim risen called "state of war," to connect that to that there was the -- showing our contacts in iran that were disclosed to the public because of another kind of similar error. so i think that we need to get in and see congress really review its own oversight of these bureaucracies. >> you put in 202 versus 20 that could result in what it did, it boggles the mind for the possibilities here. thank you both so much for coming on. have a good weekend. >> you too. >>> 2016 is being called the year of the presidential woman. hillary clinton in particular. big conference about to convene this m
. >> she broke the twitter. >> how do you hit -- dana pa rene no set me up. >> former white house colleague sweet op-ed in the new hit tweet. >> i am sweating. >> i just tweeted. >> i am in a sweat. >> well -- >> what's going to happen now? is it going to -- >> i'm -- >> i only have one follower. >> i'm going to retweet you. >> yeah. will it hurt? >> a lot of people will see it and then get a lot of hateful tweets. >> awesome. >> michael gerson, saying good-bye to my child the youngster. i put on my best face, but it is the worst thing that time has done to me so far. that moment at the dorm is implied that the kindergarten door, at the gates of summer camp, every ritual of parting and independence. but it comes as surprising as a thief taking what you value most. there is no use in brooding about it. i'm sure my father realized it at a similar moment and i certainly didn't notice or empathi empathize. at first he was a giant who held my hand and filled my sky, a middle-aged man who paid my bills. decades after his passing a much loved shadow. but i can remember the last time i hugged him i
